Forum: GratefulDead Subject: The Hypothetical "Jerry"

Alrighty, let me premise by saying that if unserious posts are not your bag (or cup-o-tea as the Brits say), then you'll likely want to avoid this one.

However, i was sitting here this eve just doing the usual, i.e., nothing overly exciting (those days are all in the past), and trying to imagine if after Jerry died, the rest of the band decided to keep going with a fill-in for Jerry (sacrilege, i know, but i'm ornery that way), and wondering who they might entertain to fill the role.

It's fairly easy to imagine who the others would never elect to serve, but not so easy to imagine who they would invite in to take up lead guitar and vocals.

And you know, it seems my mind wants to stray toward musicians/singers of that same '60's generation, even knowing that someone from that era might not be the best choice. Does the band choose someone who has a history with Jam type music, or do they bring on someone with a different musical pedigree. I don't know. So i throw it out onto the forum for your thoughts.

I always Mark Knopfler might have been an interesting choice. He has gorgeous tone and a wonderfully spacious melodic sense with his guitar. He seems to have wide-ranging musical interests, but he can still rock with the best of them.

Would have loved to see him and Jerry play together, anyway.

Knopfler? Hmm, i think you may have something there. Wouldn't have thought of him as the fill-in for Jerry, but yer right in the man's talents. Saw him in Nashville circa 1986ish, and very good live show. Thanks for the reply. Cheers.

Yeah, forgot about Carlos ...

Never got to see him with the Dead, but he's certainly got the groove.

Thanks.

Hmm, i believe that Bob as "guest" refers to him sitting in on the late Riders set, songs: Mama Tried, Sawmill, Me and My Uncle, Connection

[you are talkin' 'bout the 5/15/70 show @ Fillmore E., right?]

By the way, even though you were off the forum for several days, you were, inadvertenly and innocently speaking, the cause of another member's identity crisis:

I think Carlos Santana would have been an okay replacement if they were to replace Jerry. Dickie Betts has a similar style to Jerry, so that may have worked if they found another vocalist. Paul Barrere or Fred Tackett of Little Feat may have also been suitable replacements, they're both good guitarists and they both have pretty good voices.

I think it would be fun, but kind of creepy, to hear DSO's John Kadlicek play with the surviving band. Put Bruce & TC on keys, bring Donna along for the vocals, and it could be uncomfortably nostalgic.

Other than he didn't sing, I really liked Jimmy Herring in post GD incarnations.

If it had to be anyone it would have to be Henry Kaiser. No contest as far as I'm concerned. Check out http://www.archive.org/details/kaiser1994-08-27.shnf
for a very nice Playin' in the Band (with Weir and Welnick amongst others) and http://www.archive.org/details/Kaiser1989-02-11.flac fo ra pretty good Other One plus other delights.
